Conservatives divide the right

To the Editor,

What do you do when one political party has been in office too long with repeated incompetence?

Why not just build your own party.  Looks like John Cummins’s strong will and tenacity to rebuild and resurrect B.C.’s oldest party, the B.C. Conservatives, is beginning to take shape.

Now the B.C. Liberals and the B.C. Conservatives both appear to occupy the center-right political spectrum.

Clearly Cummins knows you can’t re-build a party with same-dung different-day. They have to keep the discredited Liberal brand apples out of their barrel.

The B.C. Conservatives need a public outcry or revolt and who knows, the frustration levels are high enough to trigger that very thing.
